    well - what kind of bow do you shoot, what's your draw length, are you sure your pulling 60lbs? What are you looking to spend on arrows, or are you looking for the best you can get? How long do you want the total arrow length to be? What weight points/blades will you be using? I would recommend at least 6 grns per inch, I've seen some nasty things at 5. Does it matter vanes vs. feathers? Fingers or Release? Overdraw? Do you want to stick to any peticular brand like Easton or GoldTip? Everything helps.
